"Thanks again - and I will definitely let them know you recommended them. They were nice to work with on the phone. Also...just in case you decide to sell your awning, please let me know. Thanks!"

"I don't work for Flourish nor have any relationship with them, other than being a customer. However, if you let them know I recommended them, that would be nice. I'd like them to know I appreciate the great service they have given me."

"Thanks, Larry - really appreciate your response. I've ordered the Undercover (R2 - which is X2 now) and also 3 mesh panels from Flourish. Nervous as heck about the money layout, but at least I will have a nice looking set-up. Have a great day!"

Larry Sohn replied to Barbara Grether's discussion Undercover brand canopy & Graphic Displays system
"Yes, on how I can do indoor shows.  My Undercovers have been in intense rain. At a location I have (not a public show, but private) I left it set up for a couple of weeks, with a lot of serious rain. No problem, no leaks. I had, pretreated the…"

"OK - so you mean that when you do indoor shows, you set up your tent frame and attach the mesh/softwall to that frame? "

Larry Sohn replied to Barbara Grether's discussion Undercover brand canopy & Graphic Displays system
"They are great for indoor shows. Why not? The only limitation is they are primarily for your perimeter. Any other use would have to be with a frame, such as a french door / wall. That is the only advantage a grid wall or propanel has over the mesh.…"

"Hellooooo...Brandon, is this still available??"

Barbara Grether replied to Barbara Grether's discussion Undercover brand canopy & Graphic Displays system
"Thank you, Larry. I think both the mesh and softwalls look so much better and would be much easier to transport and set up...but what about indoor shows? "

Larry Sohn replied to Barbara Grether's discussion Undercover brand canopy & Graphic Displays system
"I have a couple of the Undercover tents. Get the R-2. I also have the Flourish Trimline. Both have their advantages. I also have a couple of the Flourish Softwalls. I use the softwalls for all the different tents. They are GREAT!. I would not…"

Undercover brand canopy & Graphic Displays system

Hi all - I'm brand new here (and to the art show business). I have a show coming up pretty soon and have to get a tent and display system ordered. I've done so much research that my brain is scrambled. I had pretty much decided that I would buy a Flourish system that was being advertised here if it was still available, but the guy isn't responding to me, so now I need to make a new decision. I am inclined to buy an Undercover canopy because all the reviews I had read are really good - sturdy…See More

First show ever
Last month I was invited to set up at a campground in Maggie Valley, NC, during the Apple Festival. I was rained out, so technically I have not had a show. I am scheduled to show next on Dec 8th in Greenville SC.
